I am pleased to report that both the Unit B and D contracts were ratified this evening by the School Committee. I want to thank the members who attended tonight. Thank you for your investment in your Union.
There was an additional victory this evening. It was voted to include the language "domestic partner" as a member of your household for whom you can take bereavement leave. This language was put forth by all WEA Negotiating Teams and School Committee. The purpose of this is to develop language that is more inclusive and reflective of the times during which our contracts are negotiated.
